17 Cheesecake Topping Ideas

Cheesecake is that thick and velvety dessert that no one can say no to. I love serving it at house parties because I know they&rsquoll always be a huge hit. But sometimes, when I&rsquom too preoccupied with other things for my event, I just don&rsquot have the time to bake cheesecake.

What do I do instead? I get a store-bought naked cheesecake and add my touch to it by dressing it up with toppings.

While sure, cheesecake tastes amazing just as it is, it&rsquos definitely more exciting with toppings!

You can go with something traditional like strawberry sauce or cherry pie filling. Or, if you&rsquore a chocoholic like me, you can use chunks of your favorite candy bar or chopped up Oreo&rsquos.

There&rsquos a topping for every taste bud! But if you&rsquore looking for ideas and inspiration, you&rsquove come to the right place. Here are 17 cheesecake topping ideas that will make your already delicious dessert even more phenomenal.

Dairy-Free Cheesecake with Blueberry Topping

You can use the words indulgent and dairy-free in the same sentence. Like to describe this dairy-free cheesecake recipe with blueberry topping. It's rich yet virtuous, which is achieved without using cream cheese or butter or even flour. (So, yes, it's technically vegan.) Dessert, anyone?

2 tablespoons coconut oil

3 cups cashews, soaked in water overnight (see note)

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place a springform pan on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

2. Make the Crust: In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the pecans until they are finely ground. Transfer to a medium bowl and wipe out the food processor.

3. Add the sugar to the ground pecans and stir to combine. Add the coconut oil and stir until the crumbs are evenly moistened. Pour the crumb mixture into the prepared pan and press into an even layer.

4. Bake the crust for 8 to 9 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. Let the crust cool to room temperature.

5. Make the Filling: Drain the cashews and transfer to the food processor. Pulse until the cashews are coarsely chopped. Add the sugar, honey, lemon zest, lemon juice, coconut milk and vanilla extract, and pulse until very smooth (the mixture should be pretty thick).

6. Pour the cashew mixture over the cooled crust and spread into an even layer. Transfer to the freezer to chill while you make the topping.

7. Make the Topping: In a medium pot, combine the blueberries with the sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer until the blueberries are very soft and begin to burst, 8 to 10 minutes.

8.Puree the blueberry mixture in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour the puree on top of the filling and spread into an even layer. Chill the cheesecake in the freezer for at least 45 minutes.

9. Transfer the cheesecake to the refrigerator and keep chilled until ready to serve. To serve, unmold and slice the cheesecake.

Note: No time to soak the cashews overnight? No problem. Place them in a medium pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and then boil for 15 minutes. Drain and cool the cashews to room temperature before continuing with the recipe.

How to make the cheesecake filling

Here’s how the filling is made and baked:

The cheesecake filling is very straightforward to make – everything just gets mixed in a bowl, poured into the crust then baked.

TIP: Only mix until each ingredient is incorporated and the batter is smooth. No need to beat to aerate the batter. If the filling is beaten too much and becomes very aerated, then the cheesecake might rise a lot in the oven which will cause cracks. Not a big deal though because flaws get hidden under the Blueberry Sauce!

You don’t need to fuss with a water bath to prevent surface cracks. That’s only required to rectify recipes that don’t make the filling correctly, bake at the wrong temperature, or for too long.

Why cool cheesecake in the oven?

The cake is cooled in the oven for two reasons:

If you cook the cake all the way through in the oven, it puffs up too much which causes surface cracks and

To keep the cheesecake creamy inside. The oven is turned off before the cake is fully cooked, then it finishes cooking in the turned off oven. The gradual drop in temperature creates an environment such that the cheesecake finishes cooking but cannot overcook.
